Vintage horror fans are aware that Synapse just released a special edition set for Vampire Circus, a home video first for the U.S. With that in mind, Schlockmania contacted Daniel Griffith, the man behind the new disc’s special features, and asked for further details on this title’s extras. He was kind enough to do so, even sending some cool images to sweeten the deal. Read on for the Hammer-historian details (don’t forget to click on the images, too) – and if you like what you see, note the presence of the sales link at the bottom of the page…
